This year’s top of the rank is London, followed by Berlin, Frankfurt, Paris and Amsterdam. With these 4 European cities in the top 10 of investors’ favourites, Germany should lead the recovery of investment in Europe.
According to an Investor Intentions Survey, 60% of European investors plan to invest more in real estate this year than last year, whereas in the UK, more than 80% want to invest more capital. Although the difference is evident in the various countries, almost 75% of investors also indicated that they intend to buy 10% or more this year.
Despite the slowdown in investments caused by the pandemic and consequent restrictions in the countries, there is still a high interest in the Portuguese real estate market. In the expectation that vaccination plans will remain within the defined timetable, it is predicted that in 2021 European investment volumes will increase by up to 5% compared to last year.
Commercial property was highlighted as European investors’ favourite asset, despite the increase of remote working. 35% of them showed a positive market feeling towards the future of these assets, namely those of higher quality.
At the top of the list, the housing market also holds up 24% of investment intentions, followed by the industrial and logistics sectors, with 22%. Prices in these sectors are expected to show greater resilience, as opposed to hotels, retail, or lower quality offices.
Venture capital has also been seeing a significant rise over the last year as it’s also a sustainable option to acquire Portuguese citizenship. Learn more about choosing the best investment fund for Portugal Golden Visa here.
What’s more, Golden Visa’s performance has also been on the positive side of the spectrum, as it remained unaffected despite the restrictions, and only in 2020, the total investment in real estate amounted to €647 million, a slight reduction from €742 million raised in 2019 but still enabling Portugal to have a statistically normal year.

The process was very quick and clear. I got all the information I needed in the first hour. The experience was perfect.Tomoko Inoue from Japan
Overwhelming. Luisa has exceeded our expectations on all levels. Trust was established immediately. Enhanced by super friendly professionalism. The networks to banks, accountants, lawyers was seamless. there is not enough space here to write all the positives, enough to say we are making an offer and we only arrived 4 days ago. Its impossible to improve from perfection!John Mulroe and Wiebke Bock
